Native to the prairies and plains of the Southwest, Blackfoot Daisy is a low-growing perennial with an ability to thrive in tight and difficult spaces. In the height of blooming season, the deep green foliage is cloaked in long-lasting, honey-scented white flowers that have sunny yellow centers. Reflected heat, blistering sun, drought, and freezing temperatures pose no problems for this tenacious plant.
